Detecting and Deterring Drugs in Shetland

Police Scotland

Police Scotland was established on 1 April 2013 and is responsible for policing across the whole of Scotland. This is some 28,168 square miles, covering a third of the United Kingdom’s landmass with a unique range of urban, rural, island and remote communities.

At Dogs Against Drugs, we work in close partnership with Police Scotland but not directly for them.

Our dog handlers are all trained Special Constables and our dogs are all trained by ourselves and assessed and licenced by Police Scotland.

We provide a service to the local Shetland community alongside Police Scotland to continue to ensure Shetland is a safe place to live and work.
